History

//History

Avenue CDC was founded in 1991 by a group of neighbors who wanted to develop affordable housing, preserve historic buildings, and revitalize the Old Sixth Ward, a National Register Historic District in the shadow of Houston’s Downtown. Old Sixth Ward CDC, as it was then known, was operated entirely by volunteers for the first four years. Since then, our staff has grown to eight full-time employees, and our Board of Trustees now includes 18 community leaders. At the request of civic organizations from surrounding neighborhoods, by 1999 we had expanded our target area to include the entire Near Northside and Washington Avenue communities, just north and northwest of Downtown. We changed our name to Avenue CDC to reflect this expanded focus.
